Summer Backyard Trends 2020 West Palm Beach Homes

Sky Cove of Westlake is a great place to call home. The community resides in lovely Palm Beach County, Florida, close to pristine beaches and charming towns. World class entertainment and exciting outdoor adventures await those who call the community home. And for the times you want to stay home and enjoy time with family and friends, your home in Sky Cove offers the perfect venue for gathering. 

Let’s explore the top 10 summer backyard trends to make your beautiful Sky Cove home even more welcoming!

  1. Color Trends – In case you haven’t heard, the Pantone Color of the Year is Classic Blue. It’s the perfect choice for outdoor spaces, evoking peace and calm in your backyard. Plus, Classic Blue is perfectly paired with stone, wood, and metallic finishes. Classic Blue also harmonizes with the vivid greens of the great outdoors and the ever-popular charcoal grays which add a modern touch. 
  2. The Family Garden – Among the hottest trends this year is vertical gardening. It’s a perfect option for growing families, who can grow their vegetables and flowers upward, enjoying the bounty, while maintaining lots of grassy play areas for the family. You can utilize planter boxes or plant directly in the ground, allowing your plants to climb up walls, fences, railings, and more. Get the kids involved in your family garden and let the creative ideas flow!
  3. Carefree Hanging Furniture – All the rage this year are easy, breezy, flexible hanging furniture options – perfect for the front porch or the backyard. From timeless porch swings to hanging beds, hammocks to hanging sofas, you’ll find options in all summer colors, as well as a variety of fabrics and styles. 
  4. Wood Plus Pavers – If you’re looking to expand your outdoor space, the perfect backyard blend is multiple layers with a wood deck and concrete pavers. Once installed, you can paint your deck in your favorite hues or stain it to showcase the natural beauty. And with pavers, the size and style options are endless, allowing you to define your spaces while relaxing with family and friends.
  5. The Garden Escape – Want to add a special parents-only zone in your backyard? Consider a bistro corner, complete with a bistro table and a pair of chairs and flowers all around. Choose a vibrant design for your furnishings and add coordinating flowers and plants to make a small, private oasis to share your morning cup of coffee, a glass of sweet tea, or a bottle of wine with your special someone!
  6. Fireplaces and Fire Pits – Florida is the perfect place for an outdoor room, extending your indoor space. Fireplaces, fire pits, and fire bowls are the perfect accoutrement to your space whether you choose a style that is relaxing, dramatic, or elegant. Add your favorite comfy chairs and enjoy. Plus, it’s the perfect gathering place in the evening for the entire family to enjoy some delicious hot s’mores. 
  7. Outdoor Kitchens and Bars – Patio kitchens and bars are all the rage this year and perfect for families who enjoy their outdoor time together. Kitchens can feature not only a barbeque grill, but also a wine cooler or pizza oven for friends and family to enjoy. Outdoor bars are also being added, built-in permanent styles and free-standing options. 
  8. Patterns and Textures – Also popular for summer are patterns dominating the design. Stripes are back and bolder than ever before, featuring everything from Classic Blue and crisp white to bold vivid combinations like tropical blue and vibrant orange. Patterns and textures are being used to define spaces, and tiles are helping homeowners accomplish the task successfully. Mixed materials lend to the trend, with metals, stone, and organic options like copper, birch, wicker, aluminum, oak, and concrete. 
  9. Lighting and Shade – Premium Shade Umbrellas in a variety of colors and styles help you maximize your outdoor space in the hot summer sun. Cantilever patio umbrellas allow you to adjust with the sun’s movement creating shade for your family wherever you need it. Lighting in the backyard has come a long way with LED technology. Custom LED lighting is the ideal option. Available in every color, it allows you to spotlight special areas, highlight features, and, of course, light the way beautifully. 
  10. Natural, Functional, and Comfortable – A natural environment never goes out of style and you can complement yours with functional, relaxing spaces. Choose natural neutrals in your furnishings, adding pops of color in your accessories to create spaces that look amazing and work well for cooking, dining, and gathering with family and friends. Consider adding furniture pieces with versatility in mind, like seating with storage beneath and coolers that double as side tables. And last but not least, the comfort of your space should be an important part of your design.
